REDDITCH Council, working alongside Worcestershire Forum Against Domestic Abuse, organised a number of events to mark this year's 16 Days of Action campaign.

16 Days of Action is an international campaign to raise awareness of violence against women. The campaign was launched globally on White Ribbon Day on November 25, which is also known as the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and ran until Monday, December 10, which is International Human Rights Day.

As part of the campaign, a number of Redditch organisations and groups placing their painted handprints onto a large community banner entitled

‘These hands are not for hurting’ which was supplied by Inkberrow Design Centre and was displayed in Kingfisher Shopping Centre on Monday, December 10 from 9am-5.30pm.

Each of the organisations which took part produced one piece of the banner. These were stitched together to create a single large banner to show the town’s solidarity in its stand against domestic abuse and sexual violence.
